Evidence from the #iwill campaign for DfE’s written call for evidence on Character
There is lots of evidence from across the #iwill campaign that demonstrates the power social action has to develop and empower young people to be compassionate, active citizens, and, in turn, the impact this can have on communities. Below is a summary of top lines for demonstrating the impact social action has and how it develops young people’s character and transforms communities.
This summary is with thanks to #iwill partners across sectors, particularly those in research and education. The post includes:
- What are the benefits of youth social action for young people and communities?
- What role do schools play in developing compassionate, active citizens through youth social action?
- Embedding youth social action in schools and colleges is a critical lever to tackling persistent social mobility issues in the UK
